We print in another column two bills re cently introduced in Congress by the Repre sentative from this District, which if they should become laws will settle the question whether the volume of our currency is really excessive or not. Our Washington corres pondent tarnished an outline of the bills in his letter written on the day when they were offered. One of them proposes that the pro cess of contracting the currency, now in prog ress at the rate of four millions a month, shall be arrested; that on and after the 1st July next, the Secretary of the Treasury shall be directed to destroy all the United States notes now outstanding as fast as they are re ceived at the Treasury, but to replace them by a new issue payable In coin on demand one year from date. This is a proposition for a partial resumption of specie payments on the 1st July, 1868, the date, it will be remembered, at which Secretary McCulloch says in his last report “specie payments may be resumed, and ought to be resumed.” In bis second bill Mr. Lynch aims to impart to the currency a flexi bility better suited to the varying needs of trade, by authorizing the issue of 6 per cent. coupon bonds to the amount of $300,000,000, payable in coin at the expiration of twenty years, or in lawtal money on demand, and to be reissued as often as a demand may arise.— In this way a safe and convenient investment will be offered for money not actually needed for the business of the country, while a de mand rising above 6 per cent, can always be met by exchanging the bonds at the Treasury of the United States for their par value in lawful money. Mr. Lynch, it is well known, discredits the impression prevalent in many quarters, that the volume of currency is unduly expanded._ His views were flilly and ably set forth in his speech on the currency question at the last session of Congress. In that speech he prov ed that the rise in prices in this country is due to the enormous consumption of goods during the war and the C3nsequent scarcity since its close; to the paucity of labor occa sioued by the great destruction of life, limit ing production and enhancing its cost; to the heavy taxation consequent upon the war; in part also to the general rise of prices all over the world occasioned by the enormous in crease in the quantity of gold and the conse quent depreciation of that metal. The rise of prices so caused and the greatly increased business of the country he maiutained would naturally require a volume of currency such as we now have. Those who differ from Mr. Lynch,while admitting the influence of all the causes he has named believe also thatthe sud den expansion of the currency from 215 mil lions, the extreme ihnit before the war, to 700 millions, has operated upon prices in this country precisely as the increase in the quan tity of gold has operated upon prices in specie paying countries; that if the volume of curren cy were reduced, prices would sensibly de cline ; and that in that case a less amount of money would suffice for the transactions ol the country. Into this discussion we do not propose to enter. It is a question which will settle itself whenever we can get down to the solid basis of specie payments. The liest feature of Mr. Lynch’s theory is that it offers no obstacle to an immediate return to a specie basis. If the currency is not excessive, then certainly not a single note will be presented for redemption. So long as greenbacks are more convenient than gold dollars, they will be preferred if they are worth just as much. The transition fiom the present scale of prices to another measur ed by gold ought to be gradual. For that ne cessity Mr. Lynch’s bill provides by making the process of resumption partial and gradual. Meanwhile if it should turn out that a por tion of the currency is liberated bv this pro cess, is more than is needed after resumption, $300,000,000 of it can be invested at any time in the new five-twenties, payable at maturity in coin. Here then is a proposition for a return to specie payments at the early date named by Secretary McCulloch, coming from one ot Hh economists who have been so often stigma tized by the New York Tribune as “inflation ists.” If this is inflation, we should be glad to see more of it. So far we have seen no practical plan for resumption proposed by the contractionists. The Tribune’s plan is to ac cumulate gold in the Treasury until we have a third of the whole volume of paper—when ever that time may come. Mr. McCulloch wants to have the Southern States “rehabili tated,” as an indispensable preliminary. Mr. Lynch proposes on the other hand to begin next July to issue notes payable in coin a year from date. It Is the first definite proposition looking to resumption, and we wait with con siderable curiosity to see what arguments will lie urged against it. Mpinolagy. In these days, when mostof the fashionable schools for young ladies, are devoted to the various ologies of the day, suchasconchology, ichthyology and the like, we dare to suggest, as a finishing touch to their education, an ad ditional science, viz., spinology. Our grand mothers of olden times, who had the best of qualifications as wives of the patriotic men who fought the battles of liberty and achieved our national independence, knew how to spin. They were also expert at weavology, and as to cookology none of the Greeks or Gauls of ancient or modem times, could prepare a more economical and healthy repast than they. As a natural consequence of all this they enjoyed good health; and such diseases as dyspepsia and phthisic were seldom known. But in modem times these domestic sciences, so hon orable to the matrons ot the revolutionary pe riod, have quite gone out of date. A marked degeneracy, both physical and moral, has fol lowed. Then the country had women, now we have nothing but ladies. If our Female colleges cannot be induced to establish special departments in spinology, knitology, weavology, workology and the like, we would suggest that some worthy mat trons—if a suitable number can be lound, should be invited into our cities and villages and encouraged to set up spinning schools to teach young women how to spin—not street yarn,—this many of them have learned already —but good substantial woolen and linen in worklwojmau-like manner. This should be preparatory to a High School for teaching the healthy and ingenious art of weaving; and when they have become proficient at both, a good knowledge of cookology should entitle them to a diploma with the honorable degree of F. W.—Fit for Wives. Tbaxi. Tiif. Maine Nobmal for February con tains an excellent paper from Jacob Abbott on the manner of pointing out the mistakes and faults of children; the report of the Su perintendent ol Common Schools concerning the State Normal School at Farmington; ex tracts from the addresses of Governor Cony and Governor Chamberlain, touching educa tion ; an obituary notice of the Maine Teach ers’ Association, by Mr. E. P. Weston, which we copy in another column; an article on the whipping question by “O. B. S.”; and edito rial articles on normal schools, a teachers’ as sociation, and the agricultural college. These topics, so various and important, are ve;y sat isfactorily treated. The eJ itorial gossip al>out teachers and schools is very pleasant profess ional reading. The Normal deserves to be sustained aud we trust will be. If it can sur vive until the normal schools arc sufficiently numerous to gi e the occupation of teaching a professional character, (and we see no rea son why it should not,) its success will then be abundant. —A young lady in a Boston school, on being asked why, In Latin, winds came to be called masculine, quiokly replied,”! do not know, un less it (s because they are so fickle!” Tk.

The latest information indicates no abate ment iiube heroic determination of the Crc ■ tans<o throw otf the Turkish yoke a i„,, * fro'n the^w .York Tribune’s correspond at Canea gfces the following account «f affairs in the island to Jan. tl : Even those wlt^knew die obstinacy of the Cretan character, and rememliered all the res olute struggles for liberty through which for tune has mocked them, had not expected so enduring and uncompromising a resistance as the islanders have made. .Since the 12th ot August a series of expeditions as formidable as die Ottoman Empire could put alloat or ashore, have hammered away, one alter the other, at the dilleient strongholds—Cl),000 troops against a population, all told, of 250, 900; disciplined and well-equipped troops, with a tleet to bring supplies and hloekade the island, hospitals and walled cities to re lwn0’ a”aV13t a l’eoplc who nave nothing oi all tnose things which make equipment, noie sources to fall back iqion after their present pplies are exhausted, bad arms aud no or ganuation mustering at no time more than 4,UuU or o,UU0 mon, aud raielv more th in i ‘uio charged with their wives and chi^u ’aud seemg thwe die slowly under the cold and hunger ot this terrible position, no hope in diplomacy, JitUe in humanity, but much iu liberty, aud always keeping that lam, which in the Greek mind, becomes superstition, it i, true, but still a laitb, and looks to the God of Christianity as well as they can compre hend him; in brief, 00,000 men, with every modern advantage of warlike resource, against barely 50,000 men capable of carrying arms, and often destitute even of these, Uyinniny the war with Jive charyes each fur the force o/5,000 men in thejielti, and so penned intoan island that the above sentence would make a bettei blockade lor them than that which ex ists ; how them could lie a resistance ot even one mouth must ever lie incomprehensible, aud yet to-day the troops are diminished by half without having gained a point they can keep if they should meet a revei-se with their main force to-morrow. It is as ifiu the be ginning of your war a million and u half of disciplined men with English muskets aud ritied artillery had been launched agaiust the South, aud accomplished nothing. 1 mean in a military seme, because it is not to be forgot ten that Slavery was behind the insurrection in one case, and Liberty in the other, and that is what accounts for the milk in the cocoanut. Alter the auair ol Arkadi, the 1 ar my temporarily crippled aud unable to under take any new movements, fell back on Keti mo to recruit, and after a fortnight’s delay was reorganized lor a new expedition against Setinos, Uie mosi obstinate and rebellious of all the districts, as its {>eople are the most war-like. The army lett here with about 9,1X10 legulars and 5,000 or 0,000 baslii-ba zouks. At Alikiama, a town at the foot of the north slope of the White Mountains, 10 or 12 miles from here, they met the fiist resistance, a skirmish with an advance guard of Greeks, and trom there to the first stronghold, Lakus, they were nearly a week making their way, though it is but three hours walk. The Cre tans held the defiles leading to Omalo, a great plateau iu the White Mountains, where were their deiiots. At Karis, a little village near Lakus, the Turks wore badly repulsed, but a little division being ordered up Horn the central districts to llank their positions, the insurgents tell back on the defiles themselves, and finding the passage to Omalo impractica ble, the Paslia moved aleng by the right to gain the passages to Selinos, which arc ex cessively difficult if well defended. The Cre tans had about 5,000 men on the ground, with reserves of nearly as much more, who might come or go as their families demauded.— a uese wuuiu nave ueen sumcicnt to hold the passes against 50,000 men, but they had three heads, tne three Greek volunteer officers com manding the divisions of Hellenes, auil direct ing ail the military operations, having united to oiler the strongest possible resistance. But with dissensions and jealousies no plan was possible, and Mustapha, moving suddenly al ter three days of rains which deluged every thing and killed his own men by hundreds, took the pass of l’homuka by sur prise, and alter a sharp combat of tour or five hours and considerable loss, pushed a column through, and effected, the passage of his whole aiuiy without turtle r oppositiou, the Chiisliaus retiring to the mountains of Sphakia, the southern portion ot the VV hite mountains, and leaving setiuos to the discretion of the troo|>s. That this dis cretion was devastation and utter ruin, we needed no assurance, but the destruction there is said to have surpassed that in any other province. The Pasha once in Sclinos, the Christians closed in on the roads by- which he had entered,and cut off all land communica tion with the rest of the island, so that he is obliged to send for ships to get back to Canea, or effect a junction with the rest ot his torces east ot Sphakia. The Sphakian mountains occupy the Southern half of the western por tion of the islan l,coming down to the Alriean sea with a pluuge so hold that no passage is afforded along the seaside, and the passes through the moiuitains are so dillcult that no force could pass in the face of a re sistance in the least formidable. The Pasha spent a great deal of money among the Spa kiot chiefs, and hoped at this critical moment that they woul make their submission and Iiermit Uim to outrage the Hellenes who were in their valleys. But they all declared against submission, or eveu neu trality, and fired on the lioats he sent round to receive their adhesion. The whole Spha kiot population took up arms, and the Pasha was obliged to abandon any idea of opera tions based on their neutrality. He therefore attempted to embark his troops to get them rouud to the Apokoroua where there were six or eight battalions (the battalion full is 1,000), and organize a general attack on Sphakia Irom the east. But at this moment sprung up a gale Irom the westward whic h has continued until yesterday with excessive violence, and even now is blowing too baid to permit ern barkat.on of troops on a coast without hartiors. So there he slays, communication by laud with bis capital and base of supplies impossible; by sea difficult, lor a boat eau scarcely land on that coast with a westwardly or southerly wind, meanwhile trying the passes in the mountains, hut always repulsed. To gel into Sclinos Irom Phorouka was down hill—it don’t need a Greek schoolmnster to show that it’s up hill work getting back, and so Mustapha tiuds it. Regulation of the Currency and Hr* numption of Npctie Payments. Wo have just received the following l>ills to regulate the currency and to provide for the resumption of specie payments, introduced in the national House of Representatives by Mr. Lynch on the 4th instant and tefened A the Committee on Banking and Currency ol which Mr. Lynch is a member: A bill to provide against undue expansions aud contractions of the currency.

A bill to provido for the resumption of specie payments. He it enacted, Ac. Section 1. That on and after the 1st (lay of July, 18fi7, the United States notes now outstanding, shall when re ceived at the Treasury of the UuitedJStates, be destroyed uuder the direction ol the Secretary of the Treasury, aud iu lieu thereot the Secre tary of the Treasury is hereby authorized and directed to issue new U.

AtVr Series ol interesting lectures aud discussions, eomffi ued through three days, a State Association was organized under vwv favorable auspices with Mr. Dunnell as its tint President. ’ The first annual meeting was held the next November at Lewiston, where ’he attendance was quite large aud the discussions profitable and enthusiastic. Mr. Dunnell was re-elected as the presiding officer lor the ensuing year. At the next annual meeting, held at Rich mond, the writer was elected President, and re-elected at the two following meetings, at liaugor and Bath. A year larer, having re signed the ofliee ot Superintendent of Schools, i declined a re-election, and no successor hav “KJfJ lief1n appointed, Professor M. Lytdrd, Skowhegan* Coll,'ge’ was etocted President, at \V hy no meeting has been called bv the officers of the association since that time I will not assume to state. My object in this note is to call attention to the fan that an or ganization was efletced, and maintained a vig orous existence during five yea. s; and . ha* any new movement would do well to be based upon that organization, which is not dead— nut sleeps. At all the meetings of the association, able lectures and interesting discussions wi e en joyed; and at all ot them was there a very re special >le attendance of teachers and resident citizens. The meetings at Lewiston. Bath, Bangor and Augusta were ot gieat interest. Our want of railroad facilities, and the lncon venience of traveling by other methods, late in November, must ot course prevent a lull rep resentation of teachers trom remete parts of our extended territory. Aud when It Is con slue red that the existence of the association is almost precisely that of the war, t he teachers aud friends of education who sustained the association have reason to leel that their eliorts were attended with encouraging success* Allow me to Buggest that a special meeting ol the State Association shou.d Ire oalbd, sometime in the winter or spring, for the choice ot officers, and to make arrangements lor the annual meeting on Thanksgiving week, —or in August, if it is thought better to change the time. Perhaps this meeting might well be held at Lewiston, where the Secretary, Prolessor Lamb, now resides. VV ithdrawn though X am from the more public connection with our educational aflalis, 1 am still interested in the success o'" all those means of advancing the cause cf public edu cation, which are adapted to this end; associ ations, conventions, teachers’ journal, normal school, and all; and for their success will ever pray,—aud remain, Tours very truly, r.... _ Eow. P. W*STON. Little blue, Jan. 21, 1807. *•» «o Kruonitf Furl Dr. Samnel Warren, author of “Ten Thou sand a 5fear ” recently wrote a letter to the Mayor of Hull, England, to say that before leaving lor Londou he desired to make a prae tical suggestion to the housekeepers ot the town. The suggestion was this: “To econo mize the burning of coal, send for an iron monger or blacksmith, and order him to take the measure of the bottom of your grate and make yon a sheet iron plate of about one-sixth of an in h in thickness, or even loss. Simply lay this, and light your fire as usual. It will soon burn up, but you must keep pretty open tlie lowest bar, so as to secure a slight draught When the fire has begun to burn poke it. gently from beneath ana the flame will gradu ally get through the entire mass of coals, the iron plate beneath gets red hot, and so keeps up a constant combustion, at the same time dispersing the heat through the room, instead of its being sent up the chimney, thus entirely consuming the coal, instead of filling tho hearth with ashes.” Dr. Warren continues: “In my own house I triod the experiment for a week in the breakfast-room, then in the dining-room, then in the kitchen, with uniform and complete success; and then I had the sheet-iron plate put into every fireplace—and there are many throughout the house—with equal success. So I do with the fireplace in my official residence. When tho fire is once made up, say about 10 m., for the day, an oc casional poke and possibly a single replenish ment suffices for the day. In my own case, and also at my hotel here, where throe scut tles were required, one now suffices. You must not smile at the simplicity of my suggestion, but attribute my offering to a sincere desire to contribute w hat little is in my power to pro mote the comfort of, and lessen expense to ev ery householder in the good old town of Hull.” A citizen of Hull, who has since tried this plan, w rites: “The result in ray house, where I have had quarter-inch iron plates fitted at the bottom of two fire-grates, at an expeuse of two shillings each, is a saving in coal of about one third, with a considerable increase in heat. A large number of persons have already satisfac torily tried the experiment, and the use of the plates is likely to become general in this local ity” The cost of the experiment is a mere trifle.
